Man faces murder charge in Fremont Street stabbing

An arrest has been made in an October stabbing that left a woman dead at low-cost apartment complex on Fremont Street, according to Las Vegas police.

Kelvin L. James, 32, was faces one count of open murder, Metro said Monday.

He was arrested Sunday in the 4300 block of South Nellis Boulevard after police responded to reports of a “prowler,” Metro said.

James matched the description of the prowler and Metro detectives recognized him as a person of interest in the Oct. 23 stabbing. He was booked at Clark County Detention center. He is being held without bail, detention center records show.

Police were called Oct. 23 to the Siegel Suites near the intersection of Fremont and Maryland Parkway and found the body of Elizabeth Renee Green, 48. She had been stabbed in the chest.

Many details were not released, but police said the slaying might have been “domestic violence related.”
